Instructions

Place this collar around the dog's neck, adjust for proper fit and buckle in place. Cut off and dispose of excess length. Do not allow dogs to play with cut-off excess. The collar must be worn tightly enough to contact skin and so that the dog cannot remove it. Activity against ticks starts within 24 hours and continues as long as the collar is worm (up to 90 days). Ticks present in the dog's environment that may reappear on the dog will not attach and will be killed in less than 24 hours. Replace collar when effectiveness diminishes. The effectiveness of the collar is not diminished by normal wetting such as rainfall, however, it is suggested that the collar be removed before bathing. This product does not control fleas.

  • What the Vet recommended

    By on

    I was at a large retail pet store and spoke with the veterinary staff. I asked which tick collar was the best. They recommended the VIRBAC. I asked them where to find it in the store. They told me the store did not carry the collar. I located it on Chewy.com and have been very happy with the performance. Ticks will no longer attach. This is a great product.

  • Jury is still out...

    By on

    I specifically bought this collar because it is supposed to work well with K9 Advantix II topical. I still found a few ticks on my dog, but not as many as with just the Advantix. Most of them have been either dead or dying (1 or 2 live ones so far), but I probably won't repurchase. I live in New England, which has an enormous tick population. So perhaps it's just not strong enough for my area.

  • great collars

    By on

    I got these last summer and reordered for this summer. We have had terrible ticks in Ms lately and in spite of the advantage I use the ticks crawled on my dogs. So I added this collar and the ticks just dropped off! And my dogs were tick free the whole summer! I also treat the yard area with tick granules. We live around lots of woods and pastures. The only problem I had was a puppy who took delight in chewing the collars off the other dogs. I noticed the price went up this year. Bummer but I really needed them!

  • Tick Collar

    By on

    Preventic tick collar is for ticks only...I have used preventic since 2008. I live in the country and we have lots of ticks..This collar does not prevent a tick from getting on my dogs, but the tick does not bite them and it falls off of them...As long as I have my fur babies aka dogs, I will be using preventic...Great product...

  • Sizing of the collar is OFF

    By on

    I just received the collar, and not able to speak to the effectiveness. However, my 30 lb, 16" neck Boston Terrier did not fit in the smaller of the two sizes, which were to fit up to 60 lbs and 18" neck. Chewy is awesome and offered a full refund. I do want to try this brand, It is so much cheaper than Seresto, so it is worth trying based on most of the reviews.

  • Works great!

    By on

    We're in for a horrible tick season this year- I've found several already and it's barely April. I ordered these from Chewy and received them with my regular autoship super fast- they were the best priced and the fastest shipped. I love Chewy and I love that my pets are well taken care of. These collars seem to be working great and I'm hoping for a whole tick-free summer!

  • Preventive works great !

    By on

    We live in Arkansas, in the country, ticks are horrible here. This is the only thing I found that truly works against ticks, including seed ticks. We even tried the Seresto collar and it made both of my dogs cough so bad the vet said they had kennel cough but it went away as soon as we took the collars off of them, and came back immediately on the retest. Used the Preventic all last year with good results and no problems.

  • Ticks in New England

    By on

    This is the first time I have used a collar for tick prevention. So far it has been working great. Found two ticks on him but they did not bite as the collar stated it would prevent. Thumbs up so far but still early in season!

  • The best tick preventative for the price

    By on

    We've been using Preventic collars for ticks for years. We have found they are very effective, safe, and cost effective, especially if you don't have the need to treat for fleas.

    By on

    I used this on my last pup and it gave him great protection. As my puppy grows and we have run out of rooom to make it bigger we'll be buying another!
